Hurricane Harvey is expected to make landfall and hard hit shelters have been ordered mass euthanasia of all homeless animals.
Rescue groups in affected are bracing themselves for the worst. While keeping themselves and their families safe, they are also expected an influx of displaced and critical animals.
Redemption Dogs is asking for the public to rally together to help the affected animals and the mass casualties of animals expected (on top of those that are being put to sleep as we type this).
We will be keeping this blog post live for the duration and aftermath of the hurricane. We will do our best to connect rescue and resources at this time.
